  3. Hi padhu Akka,

  4. My outer crust didn't come crispy. Also the first set got out of shape when I dropped them into the oil.

    What could be the reason?

    1. Jyothsna - thank you for liking my blog and recipes. You must see to it that there is no moisture in the cutlet. If there is moisture, you can add bread crumbs or besan to remove the moisture. If you are deep frying, make sure the oil is hot enough. If you are shallow frying the cutlets, shallow fry on both sides on low medium heat until brown and crispy. Check out Broccoli Stir fry

    2. Thank you dear, I tried and it came out well.
